Antioch, CA, August 24, 2022 – Tri Delta Transit is proud to announce the opening of the Oakley Park & Ride. All are welcome to join Tri Delta Transit on Wednesday, September 14st at 10:00 a.m. at the new Oakley Park & Ride, 4300 Main Street near the corner of Cypress and Main, for a ribbon cutting celebration.
Board Chair Anissa Williams states “We are very excited to showcase a gem of eastern Contra Costa County. This beautiful lot is an important piece of eastern Contra Costa County’s transportation network that helps connect Oakley residents with BART, medical facilities, and various points of interest all over the County. We hope to see everyone at the ribbon cutting.”
The Oakley Park & Ride’s 2.4-acre lot on Main northwest of Cypress was purchased in 2009, but the process to completion was lengthy due to difficulty securing funding for new projects. The Oakley Park & Ride features 164 well-lit parking spaces, the first east county portable electric car charger, two bus shelters, bike racks, and hundreds of trees and plants. Additional improvements include sidewalk and frontage road improvements, a new median, and widening of two lanes on both sides of Main Street.
Project lead and Chief Operating Officer Steve Ponte says “Though the piece of land had challenges, we were able to work through them with the help of the City of Oakley. Together we created a park & ride that serves the community in many different ways.”
